Cutting the Fat: Holiday TV Episodes Too Hard to Swallow

The holidays are a time to relax, eat rich foods until you feel slightly ill, and nap on the couch in between watching special episodes of your favorite television shows. With the magic of streaming, we are no longer limited to just this year’s holiday specials. However… Not all holiday specials are created equal. In […]

X-Files Case Files Florida Man #1 Review: The Mystery Investigated at Last

Scully and Mulder arrive in Ocala, Florida to investigate the infamous case of the “Florida Man.” The trail leads them to an encounter with an open-air artist, an unhelpful local sheriff, an alligator-filled pawn shop, and a meth-ridden trailer park community.

Let’s Talk About ‘The X-Files’ Season 11 Finale, Episode 10

I’ll admit- when FOX announced they were bringing back their landmark drama The X-Files for an additional season, I wasn’t too happy. It was my favorite tv show growing up (aside from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), and I made my peace with it ending long ago.  Then, the network brought back the show last year for […]

Let’s Talk About ‘The X-Files’ Season 11 Episode 9, “Nothing Lasts Forever”

This week’s The X-Files is the 9th episode of season 11 on FOX, and is titled “Nothing Lasts Forever”. While investigating human organ theft, Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) uncover a mysterious cult consumed with macabre rituals. Organ theft?  Sign me up! But also be aware- there is a lot of blood in this episode. Like, a […]

Let’s Talk About The X-Files Season 11 Episode 8, ‘Familiar’

The time has come for another classic The X-Files style belief vs skepticism episode, “Familiar”. If you missed last week’s tech-heavy yet minimalist episode, you can read about it here. In season 11’s 8th episode,  Mulder and Scully investigate the brutal animal attack of a little boy in Connecticut while suspecting darker forces are at […]

Let’s Talk About The X-Files Season 11, Episode 6, ‘Kitten’

Fox did something… inspired, I guess, when they decided the current climate of politics and intrigue was perfect to bring back fan favorite series The X-Files last year for a six-episode miniseries season 10, and the general positive reception *cough* ratings *cough* meant that another was likely. Season 11 has had some misfires, lets not kid […]

E4, titled ‘The Lost Art Of Forehead Sweat’, […]

Gillian Anderson Live Tweets The X-Files, Because She’s One of Us

It’s no secret that Emmy-winning actress Gillian Anderson has a wicked sense of humor and a far less skeptical view of the unknown than her TV persona of Agent Dana Scully. Just this week, Anderson received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which actually neighbors X- Files co-star David Duchovny‘s star. The two […]

X-Files Season 11 Premiere- How COULD You, Chris Carter?

Just when I thought I couldn’t be more angry and upset as an X-Files fan after season 10, we get tonight’s season 11 premiere.  Chris Carter, the series creator who both wrote and directed tonight’s episode has always said he’s the worst at dealing with his own series’ mythos, and it REALLY showed. Obviously, I’ll be talking […]

Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends! The Weekly Static! The Weekly Static!

Gillian Anderson And David Duchovny #TakeAKnee On X-Files Set

It’s important to remember two things about the current #TakeAKnee movement: it began several months ago with still unsigned ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick exercising his right to peacefully protest by taking a knee and refusing to stand for the national anthem. His aim? Bring attention to police brutality and racial injustice. Over time, more athletes from […]
